Last week, the Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu Weekly had a teaser that they would have news of a major RPG from Square Enix this week.  According to a post at GameFAQs the game in question is Grandia 3!  There should be some confirmation tomorrow, presuming this is true.

As long as it's more like Grandia, and less like Grandia Extreme, I'm game.

mmmm, Grandia. If the story parts are geared more toward Grandia 1 with Grandia 2/Grandia extreme's combat I'll be a happy man.

It is indeed Grandia 3, and the screenshots look beautiful.  The battle system appears similar, as the screenshots show a circular gauge like the one in Xtreme.  Hopefully, we'll get a translation of the article soon.

Grandia III trailer up:

Looks amazing.  Probably the most impressive graphics I've seen on a console RPG.  

Judging by the locales in this trailer it definitely won't be a dungeon crawl like Xtreme.

I honestly tried to get into both Grandia I and II.  No dice.

I'm not sure why either.  The first one had the most annoying voice-overs plus I felt like I was playing a 6 year-old character.  The second seemed better but still I lost interest about 4 hours in.

Here's hoping third time is a charm.
